Dr. Gurpinderjeet Kaur is now offering ILUX MGD Treatment in both at our Renton and Bonney Lake office.
WHAT IS MGD?
Every time you blink, a protective layer of moisture called the tear film coats the front surface of your eye. An essential part of the tear film is an oily layer called meibum. MGD occurs when the meibomian glands that produce meibum get blocked or the secreted meibum is of poor quality and the aqueous part of the tears evaporate, as there is no oily layer to protect them.
Once treatment begins, it takes approximately 8–12 minutes for both eyes.
Dr. Kaur assesses your eyelids to determine the treatment zones.
Your eyelid is held between the soft, biocompatible pads of the iLUX® device Smart Tip Patient Interface. For comfort, you may keep your eyes closed.
Therapeutic, light-based heat will begin to warm the blocked glands to a safe temperature to help soften and release the oil. The meibum melts and your doctor has the ability to apply additional heat or pressure dependent on your needs.
Through compression, the oil is expressed from the glands and treatment is complete.
